Melted Provolone, Roasted Peppers and Meatball Sandwich Recipe

A gourmet style Italian meatball sandwich. Growing up in East Utica N.Y., this one was a family favorite. Very special to us back then when money was tight we would make this one from Sunday leftovers. Now in 2012, a sandwich you will pay plenty for and considered gourmet. Simple, delicious and Mom always put this together with love... give this one a try, the combination of flavors is one to remember.

Meatballs in Sauce (click here for homemade meatball recipe) or use store bought
Provolone Cheese slices
Garlic powder (or used fresh minced garlic pieces rubbed on the hard rolls)
Olive oil
Hard Rolls
Roasted Peppers (click here for directions on making homemade roasted peppers)
Grating cheese
Optional: oregano

Split the hard roll in half. Brush both sides with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder lightly, add a pinch or oregano and grating cheese. Add two crushed meatballs to one side, top with a slice of provolone cheese and a large portion of roasted peppers on top. Broil until the bun toasts and the cheese is melted. Drizzle some more olive oil over the top or add more Traditional Sunday Sauce if you like this covered in tomato sauce.
